Reviews for The Last Summer
Ney13 chapter 18 . 4/11/2013
I'm having a love/hate relationship with this story. It's beautifully written, heart-wrenchingly sad. I had to get up and walk away from my computer a few times because I was crying so much.

I love this story. The perspective its written in reminds me of The Lonely Bones.

I tell that to every story when I write a review. But this might be it. This would be the story I'll compare to whenever Iäll say this was the best story on this site ever.

The small nuggets of information like empty lungs and stopped heart is lovely. These are just two of the innumerable details that I loved throughout the series. Now I am completely sleep deprived and blame goes to you. This was simply excellent, no more words to waste on it.

Otherwise, I wish you a flourishing career in writing because you have it in you. I feel guilty that I read such an excellent series without paying a single dime. Inform me if you ever decide to write anything. Please!

That was so... Brilliant. Truly, truly. I laughed and cried. It's so well written, the details, the characters, the plot... I am in awe of your writing finesse. I read this all in one day, I couldn't put it down (metaphorically speaking)... Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

The ending of your chapter gives the whole thing a beautiful twist!

Jake and Tilly are amusing. D

Keep writing!

I kid you not, the ending of this story gave me goosebumps. The way you tied everything together was nothing short of beautiful. I love your take on the afterlife, at a first glance, it seems cliché, but you added so much depth to it that it seems like a brand new idea.

The relationships between all the characters are extremely well done and realistic. Tilly's character really intrigues and fascinates me, her voice is fresh and she seems real. Her life isn't completely planned out, and her reactions to her death, people grieving over her, and people moving on are nothing short of breathtaking. She seems to be the character that I can relate to the most, yet she is the most fictional of the lot. It takes talent.

I LOVE how you've told a Slash story from the point of view of a third person. I've always wanted to see it done and despite the supernatural aspects of it, it's written as seamlessly as possible here. It's refreshing to see slash, and know exactly what both of the characters are feeling, without one of the characters telling the story.

The ending to this story is better than I could have imagined. It rivals The Lovely Bones as my one of my favorite endings to a Supernatural story. It seems real, and Tilly moving onto the "real" afterlife or "Heaven" or whatever after she's seen her family and friends move on is quite poignant. The last 10 or so paragraphs are so iconic, they really convey a message well. I especially love the line: "No way. Tilly Slattery was not a slow burning candle. She was a firework." You expertly wrote Tilly coming to terms with her own death and accepting that she lived a good life, despite it being cut short.

I love the world you've created. I can't say enought good things about it. This deserves so much more reviews. I love this story, simple as that. (:

Kneecap chapter 18 . 7/4/2010
WELL. I've just finished reading this (obviously...). Tbh, I'd have read it over a year ago, when I read your other stuff, but I always put it off for some reason, and I only came back to it - and this site - just on an off-chance. This is one of those stories that you've just got to read.

I think the reason was (as I've finally realised) that it's SO SAD. I must have a heart of clay or something. You spun raw humanity, a wonderful and funny narrative, and a plot full of conviction together to make some...jumper of awesomeness? Idk. I'll try and be light-hearted to deal with my heart break u_u

I don't really even know what to say. It was just so brilliantly written. Sex, drugs, and rah rah rah isn't really my first-choice when it comes to literature, but there was something about Tilly that just wouldn't let you not appreciate the story, je pense. Liking my double negative there. Hellz yeah.

The only thing I was uncertain about was Owen's parents' demand that he retake his A levels in order to try for Oxford again. From personal experience, if you don't get their (or any Russell group uni's) required grades the first time around, they don't give a toss how much you improve them by, because other people got the right grades first time. Obviously, that wouldn't stop them from suggesting it, but they seemed like the kind of people who'd know that it wouldn't matter if you retook your A levels. But I suppose it might just have been an instinctive reaction? Idk. I'm picking at threads.

In a word: beautiful. You have a real talent.

Beautiful story of acceptance, love, friendship. Seriously. I've been raving about this to all my friends. I vote you publish it, okay?

Really. It's gorgeous.

I feel so bad for the parents. Also, cudos to Owen for not giving in and having meaningless sex with Jake. Although I'm sure it would've meant stuff.
